What’s the Dish?

Most eateries are hosting Restaurant Week until August 22, so you know where to go for eats. But if it’s cocktails you’re lushing lusting for, then you can count on us to refill your calendar.


Sundays, 3-10 p.m.
Sangria Summer Sundays
Zócalo Cocina Mexicana, Brighton

Sangria is like your blood, the supply should be constantly flowing. To the rescue with a steady stream is Zócalo’s summer sangria flight, three glasses of the fruit-addled wine libation for $12. The August selection: blood orange, pomegranate, and mango.

Aug. 18, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Riesling Night

Boston Wine School
We love a sweet riesling, except when we like a dry one. Join Boston Wine School as they showcase the entire spectrum of this chameleon grape with refreshing wines from vineyards in Germany, California, Washington, Australia, and New Zealand.


Mojito Mondays
RumBa, InterContinental Hotel, 6-7 p.m.

They’ll teach you how to make the drink, but don’t expect a pass behind the bar. Every Monday evening, RumBa, the InterContinental’s rum and champagne bar, hosts mojito making classes sponsored by Bacardi.

Every day through September
Sushi and Sake Flight Special

Looks like someone wants to make sure you’re eating while you’re drinking. For the months of August and September, the Coolidge Corner Japanese restaurant offers a flight special which pairs three sakes with five pieces of nigiri (that’s the one with the rice) sushi.
